Hogwired, the University of Arkansas's sports Internet site for news and such, has a story that the football games between North Texas and Kentucky have been switched next fall, with Kentucky-UA now falling on Sept. 22 and North Texas coming the week after. TV is behind the move; ESPN may want to televise the UA-UK game the evening of Sept. 22, whereas the previous date had too many conflicts.
By the way, North Texas is one of three Sun Belt Conference teams on the Hogs' 2007 football schedule. You probably already know Arkansas State is in the Sun Belt Conference. No, we don't think Arkansas and ASU should play each year, but if the UA is going to pack its nonconference schedule with ASU's conference rivals, then maybe they should. The other non-conference game? Division 1-AA Tennessee-Chattanooga, for Little Rock. Thanks, Frank. Enjoy your retirement package. You did a great job these last few years.
